After the visit MaryAnn Soriano Malvig The director of Church/Strategic Partnerships Western US Region at World Relief, shared, "I'm just humbled that I can see with my own eyes empowering women in action. This makes my heart soar! The fifth largest city in Jordan now is a refugee camp. Look what the Jordanians are doing to help.
These ten refugee women just graduated from a plumbing course in Jordan. They wanted to learn how to fix things in their home so they wouldn’t have to call a plumber or ask their husband. How many American women can do this? I know I can’t. A church from OC provided them with their own “tool kit.” Love this 1000x’s over. Thank you Mountain View for your generosity."
